less agree with the democratic controlled senate in harry reid. politically, finding the consensus to do it, there is an acceptance around the capital that if an agreement is going to be reached, it will have to be like the fiscal cliff deal was, like the transportation bill was. speaker boehner has to pass it with a lot of democratic votes. that is a politically risky thing to do. in the crisis will lead him to do it. getting a majority of republicans to vote for a deal that can also be agreed to with 60 votes in the senate, there is no way to do it right now. host: todd zwillich is a reporter on capitol hill. lesley clark spends much of her time at the white house for mcclatchy newspapers. we will focus on sequestration and we will break it down topic by topic. later in the week, we will look housing and education issues. we hope you tune in all week as we provide more specific details on what will happen and how it could potentially impact you. let me go back to bob woodward. it is one of the opinion pages driving the day. he says the president and jack lew have this wrong. thes
majority leader harry reid had to switch his vote to know to bring the vote back up again after the senate comes back from recess. you have a lot of republican senators who said as recently as last week that they did not want to see the choice filibuster. even if they wanted to vote no, he at least deserved an uptown vote to be approved. there was no precedent -- precedent to filibuster president's choice like this. the republicans decided they wanted to try to use this vote as a way to extract more information from the white house on the issues like the terrorist attack on benghazi in september. they submitted to passing hagel when they come back. it way you're looking at, is delaying the inevitable. chuck hagel will be confirmed as defense secretary. he is just going to get to wait 11 days. to me, it seems like you should confirm him, because you're going to confirm him anyway. it is just another delay in what the senate is trying to do. harry reid set a new vote for tuesday, in 11 days. what do republicans want to see in the meantime? guest: they say they would like answers again from t

secretary. defense is run into some roadblocks. senate majority leader harry reid filed a motion to end a republican filibuster of chuck hagel's nomination. it sets the statement for a full senate vote on hagel's nomination tomorrow which needs 60 votes in order to pass. and the senate intelligence committee is delaying a vote to confirm john brennan to head the central intelligence agency. chairwoman dianne feinstein postponed the vote saying she wants more details on the white house drone program and the tax on the u.s. consulate in libya. >>> still ahead, a campaign fundraiser turned uglyout side facebook founder mark zuckerberg's california home. we'll tell you why. >>> some welcome news no those stranded cruise ship passengers. we'll tell you all about it when we come back.  >>> later today, the nightmare for thousands strappedded on -- stranded on a cruise ship will finally be over. the ship is expected to dock in moab beal, alabama today. it is offering passengers an additional $500 in compensation because of all this. >>> a crowe gathered outside mark zuckerberg's h
was serious, he would sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. the house has acted twice. we should not have to act the third time before the senate begins to do their work. guest: speaker boehner was the chairman of the education committee when i sat on there when i first came to the congress. he is usually a very reasonable person. i think some of that was a little bit of politics. i do not seek the president using our armed men and women as props. certainly, i think there is some gamesmanship going on by both sides the bottom line is -- and both sides could the bottom line is, speaker boehner, there are many people that want to be at the table with you and want to start to make smart cuts -- both sides. the bottom line is, speaker boehner, there are many people that want to be at the table with you and want to start making smart cuts. if we need to save defense, if we cannot cut deeply to defense, then sit down with us and decide how much from defense is really fat and waste right now, and let's figure out how we make up the rest of that money. that is called a new rev
, and the reason why it was 58 votes is because harry reid switched his vote to no soap the senate can bring it back up again. you have a lot of republican senators who were saying last week that they did not want to see it go up in filibuster. at least it would be an up-down of the to be approved. there was no precedent to filibuster a choice like this. and the republicans decided they wanted to use this vote as a way to extract more information from the white house on issues like the terrorist attack in benghazi in september, and so they are committed to passing a goal when they come back. the way you are looking at it, it is a tedious exercise in delaying the inevitable. chuck hagel will be confirmed. he will just have to wait 11 days. you should confirm him because you are going to confirm him anyway. it is just another delay in what the senate is trying to do. host: harry reid set a new vote for tuesday, in 11 days. what do republicans want to see in the meantime? guest: they say they would like answers again from the white house, more details about what the president did and did not do
in washington, of the president and john boehner and mitch mcconnell and nancy pelosi, harry reid, getting together, sitting down this week, recognizing that this sequestration or these forced budget cuts, that's the worst way of cutting spending, coming up with some alternative. you know, it's remote. it's not necessarily, you know, likely, but it's still doable if there's some good will on both sides. >> well, we'll see. we'll see what the republicans have to say of john boehner and the house gop leaders have scheduled a news press for 4:00 p.m. today. wolf, you'll have a lot live on your program later today. thanks for being with me. that story continues. >>> and then also, a horrific crash at daytona sent dozens of fans to the hospital. you probably saw the pictures, but do those injured fans have a case against the speedway or anybody else for what happened to them? we're going tosk our legal experts next. working behind the scenes to provide companies with services... like helping hr departments manage benefits and pensions for over 11 million employees. reducing document costs by up
to say a couple of things. first and foremost, if harry reid, democrats, and some republicans feel so strongly about the job cuts and things like that, making sure that teachers have the money they need to work and get the raises they want to give them and see other people get paid more, then why in the world would they agree to allow the government to spend -- because they have already said they have money to do this -- why would they allow the government to spend money to 20use me, 11 million million illegals who are here -- guest: i was stationed at fort eustis, virginia, so i have a lot of fond memories of where you live in the state of virginia. i hear this all the time at home in tennessee. i am your next-door neighbor in the mountains of bristol. one foot is in virginia and one foot is in tennessee. i hear what you are saying exactly, that there is money being spent on people who are here illegally and we are having problems funding our own education system. i was the mayor of johnson city, tennessee, and practiced medicine full-time. it is a town of 16,000 people. we highly va
to cut back on the number used. after harry reid said the republicans were filibustering hagel, he called for a vote yesterday. cloture, filibuster, what is it? >> cloture is a maneuver to limit debate to essentially end a filibuster. >> to get to the vote already? >> to get to the vote. a filibuster is where you're delaying and you keep talking or keep having procedural delays to keep something from passing or from being -- someone from being confirmed. i'll say this, is one of the conundrums the republicans have been having is that sometimes senator reid will actually file a motion for cloture to limit debate when there hasn't actually been a filibuster present. >> some are crying foul on that. back to the nomination, is it a smoke screen of sorts to bring up issues that you mentioned, talking about the attack in libya, and other issues before? have we not gone through these sort of hearings, or is this legitimate, legitimate concerns republicans need answers before a vote can happen? >> well, this is the way the process works. i was talking a couple of days ago to senator lindsey graha
speaker boehner, senate democratic leader harry reid, and nancy pelosi, the house democratic leader, will attend the meeting on friday at the white house. on c-span we have been talking to capitol hill reporters about the potential impact of the sequester. here's a look at how it might be affecting the education department. >> joining us now from domination week is reporter allison klein, she's on the phone to talk about what she's education cuts could mean. good morning. we heard the education secretary call them dumb cuts. what the republicans calling the potential cuts to education? >> that's funny. they have been pretty quiet about that. i think it's a losing issue to come out and say we really want to make sure we cut programs like title 1, disadvantaged students, head start programs like that. so they have been fairly quiet when it comes to the education cuts and sequestration. >> let's look at some of the specifics, the white house is warning about a 8.2% across-the-board for most education programs. what else are we seeing? >> actually with the s.s.i. .3% cut because of some
united, and they're going home. i am sure we can get harry reid, he will come back as the speaker will join with us in supporting the plan that the house and senate democrats and the president supports to avoid the sequester and avoid 750,000 americans losing their jobs. we will do it. they put a plan on their table, we put a plan on the table, the house has put zero plans on the table. >> they always talk about what they did in the last congress. those bills are gone. they keep pointing to them as if somehow magically they are going to be resurrected. if they want to resurrect them, put them on the floor and let's vote. >> it is often talked about, sequestration, and we have heard so much about the sequester. will you lay out areas that are most important to democrats that the sequester will impact? >> i will defer to our budget chair because he has worked with all of our caucus on this, but i know other members will be talking about it, and that is where the rubber meets the road in the appropriations committee. that we say, since you mentioned education, when they talk about cu
't want sequester. harry reid doesn't want sequester. and i don't want sequester. and i would hope, based upon your comment that i just quoted, you don't want sequester. but we're not going to get away from the sequester unless there's legislation that you bring to this floor and you have the authority to do that, that will obviate going to sequester and will put in place an alternative which will do what both of us want to do which is address the deficit and the debt, both short-term and long-term. senator says, i have a feeling sequester is going to happen. i think there's so much concern about the debt and spending that it overrides most issues these days. now, those most issues are those 200,000 people that you talked about in your statement. another senator said, looks like where we're headed, sequestration. the sequester is the only cuts we've got right now. so the consequences of the sequester are apparently not something he wants to avoid. gridlock is leading to spending reductions, if the government does nothing, spending goes down. we have to claim victory, congressman mulvaney
. the senate has not budgeted anything. they have not come up with a budget plan. harry reid and the democrats. they want to put blame on the tim -- put blame all the time, puts the blame on them. our deficit now is 1.5 trillion dollars. it's three times the amount. if we don't start cutting now and worrying about our country, we will not have a debate anymore, we will not have a country left. all these geniuses. let's start cutting fraud of all these illegals collecting all fair and food stamps in my state. let's start cutting that. there are many things we can cut. but nobody wants to do anything. we're going to go down with the ship. host: on twiter -- we already have read these. i apologize. if you would like to continue the conversation on sequestration, you can go to our facebook page. there is a lively conversation going on. that will continue throughout the day. a couple more articles before we get to some of our gas segments. obama chooses and environmentalists executive for the interior. there's a picture of president obama and sally jewell, nominated to be secretary of the interior.
of working to replace these security cuts with cuts to waste, president obama and harry reid are trying to pass a tax hike in the senate. a tax hike that the nonpartisan c.b.o. says will increase our deficit for the next two years. it seems that instead of solving the problem, president obama and his allies are only making it worse. mr. speaker, it's time to get serious about the $3 billion we borrow every day and cut spending in a responsible way that saves the american dream and keeps our national security strong. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from california seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute, revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. >> again, thank you, mr. speaker. unless we do something, friday will be a day that none of us will want to see but that very few of us seem to have the colonel or convention to prevent. mr. lowenthal: today, we have two options. devastating meat cleaver cuts or political courage. last week in my district
john boehner talking to the president or mitch mcconnell talking to the vice president or harry reid, there's a few people at the top trying to make these decisions thinking we should all fall. there's little reach the bottom to find out where we are coming from and it's based on seniority. that hasn't worked well. we haven't been able to fix much with that type of attitude so i know when we reach out and have 25, 30 of us and we are reaching across the aisle malae -- i will give you a perfect example. we had a problem with revenue and people said we don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. we have people on the other side saying we don't spending problem, we have a revenue problem. they are both right and they are both wrong. how do we get people on the other side if a republican says i don't want any more revenue but they said it might not be that it's just i don't like the way that you spend the money and the democrats say okay. can we come to an agreement? if we vote to have revenue and also you are asking me as a democrat if we have new revenue can you spend it

by the armed services committee on tuesday on a party-line vote. 14-11. came to the floor yesterday and harry reid filed a motion yesterday to limit debate and force a vote on the nomination which is expected to happen on friday. earlier today, however, the democratic leader accused republicans of mounting a full-scale filibuster of chuck hagel. the nevada senator saying it was, quote, shocking and tragic republicans would block the haguele assassination. that is the subject -- hagel nomination. that is the subject of much debate this afternoon. you can follow it on c-span2 and across the c-span networks today, we are covering president obama who is speaking this afternoon at this hour and we'll take you live to the house floor and the president speaking in decatur, georgia. d ask for its consideration. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report theres. rution. the clerk: house calendar number four, resolved that upon adoption of this resolution, it shall be in order to consider in the house the bill h. reform 273, to eliminate the 2013 statutory payment adjustment for federal employees.
rally instead of traveling a mile and a half and sitting down to harry reid and coming up with a plan to, to replace these cuts with smarter reforms and smarter approaches. over the last 10 months, the republicans have been working and we have passed two bills to replace these cuts. we need the president to stop campaigning for higher taxes and come back to washington d.c. and the lead. dodge the president is more interested in holding a campaign rally and urging the senate democrats to actually pass the plan. we know there are smarter ways to cut spending and continued to grow our economy. that is why republicans have acted to replace the sequester with what we would argue are smarter cuts. the president says we have to have another tax increase to avoid the sequestered. you got your tax increase. it is time to cut spending in washington. instead of using our military men and women as campaign props, begin to address our problems. the house has acted twice and we should not have to act a third time before the senate begins to do their work. >> we heard the president said last week that
